Sundays are a special day for Americans. It is a day when many meet together in houses of worship and celebrate God’s many blessings to us. Individuals all over the land take inventory of their lives and reflect on how they can improve their spiritual condition to be better persons.
This Sunday was no different. I reflected on Job 1:21, which reads: “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return there. The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.” It’s a beautiful passage that speaks to the magnificence of God. And it is wonderful to remember that God is still God no matter what our immediate circumstances are.
It was indeed a most poignant reminder because of what we all knew was happening in our nation’s capital at the same time.
